My ideal clients range in age from adolescents through adulthood, including couples and families. They may have a past history of trauma or grief, or perhaps they are presently struggling with symptoms of ADHD, life changes, or a breakdown of a key relationship. They may be feeling completely overwhelmed and unsure where to go next. They will be open to trying new ideas to help them on the path to feeling better, but will not be worried about talking to me when certain strategies that do not work for them, as they will know it is best that we use techniques that they are comfortable with and will use.

My specialty is listening, assisting decision making and being a support. If you would like to make an action plan, change, create and follow through with goals, we can work together to make that happen. I provide individual and group counselling to build confidence, self-image, communication and friendship/social skills. I use the interventions of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, (CBT) to treat depression, anxiety, youth/parent relationships, ADHD, and stress by addressing thinking and by changing behaviours to support your life.

Accepting new clients for November 2022. My practice is rooted in the relationships that clients and I build together, creating spaces of trust and security; that’s where healing can start. I am passionate about providing trauma-informed mental health support that is accessible, rooted in compassion and aware of systemic barriers. I genuinely love working with people while witnessing them confront their challenges and grow as individuals; providing counselling gives me with an incredible sense of meaning and vitality.

My ideal client is open to the idea of therapy, but might need a patient and welcoming therapist to help them open up. They are looking for a therapist that feels like an old friend, someone they can say anything to. They might be looking to improve relationships in their life, build confidence and self-worth, or shift some long-standing habits. Maybe they are going through a transition or a loss and need support through the changes. I am particularly passionate about supporting teenagers, parents, elders, folks dealing with body image issues, and couples.

I am only accepting clients for online therapy at this time. Many of the people I see are struggling with life stress such as graduating from university or entering the workforce or changing careers, depression, anxiety, self-injury, thoughts of suicide, and family stress. I also have an interest in men's issues and helping people who have never attended therapy.

If you are ready for things to feel different, and know that some compassionate accompaniment would help, I'm here to support you. If you often feel overwhelmed by the demands of life, and find it difficult to connect with other people and your own sense of self, let's explore together. Maybe you are facing mental or physical pain, or you notice patterns of unhealthy behaviours or relationships, or you're not coping well with the burden of grief. If you have a sense that there's got to be another way to live, it may benefit you to work with a somatic therapist and tap into the wisdom and capacity of your own nervous system.

Sometimes life's challenges or transitions can be overwhelming for a person or family to solve on their own. Counselling provides support as you adjust to transitions such as those involving grief and loss or separation/divorce. I utilize diverse theoretical approaches in my counselling practice, drawing upon my training and experience in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples and Family Therapy, trauma-informed and attachment issues, play therapy, and mindfulness techniques.

You’re exhausted and grumpy. You thought having a kid would make your family complete, but now all you and your partner talk about are diapers and schedules, and who is (or isn’t) taking care of the kids. It’s hard to hold onto the joy everyone tells us our kids should bring. You worry that things will never get better, and that you and your partner will just grow further and further apart. Even worse, you’re starting to resent your partner, your kid, and everyone else that makes it look so easy to have the perfect little family. It’s so lonely feeling like the only one who is struggling with life and family these days.

I am a Licensed Counseling Therapist candidate, (RCT-C) whose specific psychotherapeutic training is anchored in Drama therapeutic processes. This is a therapeutic approach that utilizes talk therapy and engages personalized creative expression for catharsis. It is an innovative approach for those who may be stuck in old patterns or need to explore new ways to better communicate them. Clients explore alternative solutions to challenges by rehearsing alternative cognitive/behavioral responses using “what if ” imagination. Engaging an element of guided, gentle imaginative physicality helps better express what might be suppressed.

You aim to live in a way that doesn’t let anyone else down but are noticing that in doing so, you are letting yourself down and your own needs are not being met. You feel conflicted and anxious because “don’t good people always show up for others? Then, why do I feel hollow, lost, and unfulfilled?” You are noticing that something is off-balance in your life, and you are curious about what is it that YOU like, want, need, and desire. You wonder, “could it be possible to live a life that aligns with my true self?”
